The Redskins only have 52 players on their roster and therefore only needed six inactives.
Thompson returns to action this week and likely continues to play behind Adrian Peterson in the run game. Thompson should get back to his third down, pass-catching role, but is probably a risky play his first week back.
WAS RB Chris Thompson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Here are the point totals for the Washington offense over the past four games: 13, 16, 16 and 16. With a home match-up, Vegas is being "generous" this week with an implied team total of 17.75 points. With a fourth-string quarterback at the helm, this is not an offense to rely on for fantasy production in Week 17. This is a team that's just trying to stay competitive via its defense and special teams.
